Hull York Medical School

Biomedical science is at the heart of medical breakthroughs in some of the world’s most significant diseases – including cancer, diabetes, stress and a range of other medical conditions.

This degree programme is specifically designed for you to explore a number of themes of your own choosing. You will undertake a 40 credit independent research project available on a number of themes including cancer biology (e.g. tumour hypoxia, tissue microfluidics, epigenetics and biomarkers), cardiology (e.g. platelet dysfunction, atherothrombosis and metabolic disease), microbiology (e.g. wound healing, antiviral drug repurposing, biofilm treatments and molecular virology) and more. You can decide from a selection of specially curated modules addressing themes related to human health and disease.

This degree will help you develop your academic research skills, including critical analysis and data analysis in addition to experimental design and practical laboratory skills.

All teaching will be undertaken within the Department of Biomedical Science, University of Hull. On successfully completing the programme, you will graduate with a BSc (Hons).
